Wednesday, September 4, the house of Commons of the Parliament of great Britain passed a law banning “hard” Breaksit, and agreed to hold early elections on the terms offered by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. Thursday, September 5, French Newspapers publish articles about what is happening in the UK.
“Another crazy day in Breaksilence”, — writes the newspaper Le Monde about the opposition in the British Parliament. Le Figaro, in turn, mentions “an explosive atmosphere in the parliamentary lobby”. Publications write about “two Boxing punches”, which caused Johnson to Prime Minister house of Commons.
The first “blow” is that the Prime Minister could not avoid the “rebellion” in the ranks of its supporters-conservatives. A large group of tories opposed the “hard” Brekzita and voted in favor of a law prohibiting the exit from the EU without an agreement. Also on 4 September, the conservative Philip Lee moved to the liberal Democrats. As a result of its decision, the Cabinet of Boris Johnson lost a majority in Parliament.
The newspaper Le Monde explains the cause of the “mutiny on the ship of Boris Johnson”: the fact that many members of Parliament believe that the British government is only one strategy of the country’s withdrawal from the European Union, and it consists in the fact that he was held in harsh conditions. Le Monde cites information published in the British newspaper the Telegraph. It says that the adviser to Boris Johnson Dominic Cummings called the negotiation process with the EU “masquerade”. “Prove to us that you are negotiating, and publish sentences that you intend to make Brussels!” — leading newspaper the words “rebellious” conservative, former Chancellor of the exchequer in the government Theresa may Secretary Philip Hammond.
The new law stipulates that the government until October 19, must or to prepare a new draft agreement with the EU and submit it to a vote in the house of Commons, or to obtain the consent of Parliament to the exit without a deal. If none of these options fails, the Prime Minister will have to ask Brussels to delay Brickset until 31 January 2020.
Boris Johnson called the law, excluding “hard” Breksa, “surrender to the EU”, “Never until today, the house of Commons forced the Prime Minister to pass a law. This will allow the EU to save the UK to itself on favorable terms! This law — defeatist”. His words leads to Le Figaro.
The second “blow” is that the house of Commons refused to hold early elections within the timeframe proposed by the Prime Minister. The speaker of the house of Commons John bercow even had to make a comment “raging” Johnson, who allowed himself to violate etiquette, adopted in the British Parliament, and to appeal to the leader of the labour party Jeremy Corbin by name. Usually parliamentarians address each other as “My esteemed colleague”. Johnson called Corbin “the first opposition leader in history, who refused to hold elections.” The labour party has refused elections and stressed that they are ready to spend their EU adopted the final text of the law against “hard” Brekzita.
Le Monde cites the view of Professor of political science, University of Strathclyde John Curtis. He believes that the postponement of the elections at the end of October will put Boris Johnson in a humiliating position, as he will be forced to ask the European Union next delay. But labour run the risk of being accused of “anti-democratic game” and failure to comply with the will of the citizens, among which is also the confrontation: demonstrators with placards “Boris the clown!” and “fuck Brickset!” confronting protesters with banners “We voted to secede!” and “In a democracy a majority is a majority!”.
The newspaper Le Monde notesthat in Brussels is in full swing preparing for Bracito without an agreement. Wednesday, September 4, the European Commission presented another sixteenth version of measures to prepare “hard Brickset”. This scenario will inevitably entail economic consequences not only for Britons but also for the inhabitants of member countries of the European Union. Particularly acute this problem becomes, in the version of Le Monde for France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Ireland. To soften the economic shock, EU officials have prepared a Foundation, but to qualify for these funds can a limited number of EU countries.
